Na School, Na Homework
‘Na School, Na Homework’ is a fun story about a girl who is fascinated by the carefree life of a sparrow and wishes to be one. She thinks that if she were a sparrow, she would have flown from tree to tree, branches to branches. She would have sat on a cow. Neither had her feet gotten dirty, nor she would have had to wear socks.

It starts with telling how some vegetables taken out from inside the ground and some picked from plants and trees, above the ground. While describing each step of the vegetables’ journey, the story also highlights common elements of a village, like fields, tube well, cattle herds, flour mill, etc.
‘Khatta Bakrah’ is a humorous story of a goat that lived on a lemon tree. The story tells how the goat used to eat lemons of all types and sizes, day and night and sleep. The story then describes what happened when one day the goat encountered a hungry lion that used to sit under the tree.
This story is about a kite and a boy named Meekael. In this story, the kite talks to Meekael and tells him about what it is viewing from the sky.
